Waite House

Rafe Maclean Architects

“This stylish contemporary house traces the low linear ‘kiwi modern’ style of the 1940s while dealing directly to new expression. The stepped roofs and floor planes follow the natural disposition of the land. An open plan kitchen and living area with access to both north and south decks forms the upbeat hub of the house. Good sun exposure and the indoor/outdoor living requirements of the clients are provided for in straightforward, modular units.”
